Maybe useless or wait till your fish stop moving and try to keep your hand still best way to get a good pic.

What type of camera are you using? I have a Canon Powershot and the best photos I have taken are without using the flash, in a dark room with just the tanklights on, using the macro "mode".

Well, this mod certainly does NOT know everything. Do any of us ever really know everything??

I just googled the specs on your camera and it seems that it is perfectly capable of taking nice pictures. Post the second grouping of pics you took (we still need to ID your pleco) and let's have a look.

The last picture posted is pretty clear. Did you play with the macro mode on the camera??

According to this link the macro mode is found under the manual focus feature of your camera:
